Program Description
In a 5-day residency, students engage in five 90-minute workshops to create multicultural art panels illustrating aspects of their respective cultural heritage. This interactive project assists schools with fostering a sense of awareness and appreciation of cultural diversity. Students identify characteristics of their respective cultures that are similar and different from their classmates. There is a strong artist/teacher collaborative relationship which encourages input from family and community members as students research, celebrate and share aspects of their own cultural heritage. Cost includes materials, Artist's fee, designing and assembly of the Coat.
